Enfield – Police Chase Ends In Fatal Crash

A car chase that started in Enfield resulted in fatalities yesterday morning.

A few minutes after 11:00 a.m., an Enfield patrol officer reported observing a pickup truck running erratically near the intersection of Route 5 and Alden Avenue. The officer followed the vehicle on its northbound route and reported seeing the driver running through several red lights in the area. Just a few minutes later, the truck passed the Connecticut-Massachusettes line after which it crashed into a U.S. Postal Service vehicle being driven by 40-year-old Dan Nacin of Enfield. The federal employee sustained critical injuries in the crash and was immediately transported to a nearby hospital where he was eventually pronounced dead. The driver of the pickup truck also sustained serious injuries and eventually died. The crash is currently being investigated by state and local officials. Updates will be provided as they become available.

The circumstances and locations involved in this case required the intervention of authorities from both Connecticut and Massachusettes. Jurisdictions aside, investigators will eventually establish liability in this case. Taking note of this is important because in road incidents that involve DUI, reckless behavior or negligence, aggrieved parties or their families will have various options they can discuss with their legal counsel to help them find closure after these unfortunate events.

Branford – Highway Vehicle Accident

Reports came in of a vehicle accident in Branford late yesterday evening.

At approximately 10:19 p.m., authorities received reports of a crash on I-95 and immediately dispatched emergency crews to the northbound lanes of the highway. A vehicle accident occurred around a mile past Exit 54 (Cedar Street). Injuries were reported, and the area was cordoned off while those involved were tended to by emergency personnel. Officials have yet to specify the number of vehicles involved and other information pending an investigation into the cause of the crash. Updates will be provided when appropriate.

Highway driving, particularly at night, is inherently more dangerous to all motorists.

Hamden – Vehicle Crashes Into House

A vehicle crashes into a residential building in Hamden yesterday afternoon.

The incident was reported at around 1:00 p.m. and occurred on Westminster Street. Emergency crews were immediately dispatched to the area and discovered a pickup truck that had collided into a house.

The crash is currently being investigated, and officials will release more information about the incident as they become available.

There have been instances in the past there vehicle-property collisions were caused by product defects, so this is a possibility that investigators will always look into.

North Canaan – Vehicle Accident

Authorities responded to reports of a crash in North Canaan yesterday evening.

At approximately 7:30 p.m., officials dispatched emergency crews to Route 44 (Church Street) after receiving reports of a single-vehicle accident.

Bristol – Multi-Vehicle Accident

Two people were hospitalized after a multiple-vehicle collision in Bristol yesterday afternoon.

The incident occurred on Pine Street (Route 72), near its intersection with Hemlock Street. At around 3:00 p.m., three vehicles were involved in a collision that forced two cars into the yard of a residential property. Emergency crews quickly arrived and closed down the accident site to facilitate cleanup operations. EMS crews transported two motorists to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries. The accident caused heavy delays in the area, though the site has since been cleared. Officials have yet to identify any of the victims pending an investigation. They will do so when appropriate.

Multiple-vehicle collisions can be challenging to investigate because the causes of these accidents are not immediately obvious.

Hartford – Crash With Entrapment

A motorist was trapped inside his car after an accident in Hartford last Sunday.

Authorities were alerted to reports of a crash and immediately sent fire and EMS crews to the area of 24 Park Place. According to officials, a vehicle rolled over, trapping its driver. Fire crews quickly worked to extricate the motorist, after which the driver was tended to by EMS personnel. The area was cordoned off for a few hours after the incident and has since been completely cleared. Authorities will release more details about the crash and its subsequent investigation as additional information becomes available.

Despite the inclusion of various safety features in almost all modern vehicles, there are still road-related incidents that result in occupant entrapment. Identifying the causes of these incidents can help authorities improve road safety for everyone. It’s also important to point out that people who are injured in accidents, particularly those involving negligence, should consult legal experts to determine what they are eligible for as this is an important step in finding closure after these unfortunate events.

Trumbull – Motorist Stabbed In Larceny Incident

A motorist was stabbed by a teen that stole his car in Trumbull yesterday.

The incident occurred at the Westfield Trumbull Mall parking area. Earlier that day, a 22-year-old driver reported his vehicle, a 2015 Ford Fusion, stolen near the intersection of Manhattan Avenue and Wayne Street. After reporting the crime, the victim went to Westfield Trumbull Mall upon receiving reports of his credit card (stolen with the car) being used there. At the establishment parking lot he noticed his car being driven by 19-year-old Alizen Elliston. He tried to apprehend the suspect, at which point he was stabbed in the torso by Elliston. The victim was still able to apprehend the suspect, keeping her restrained until authorities arrived. Officials later confirmed that Elliston stole the vehicle and used the victim’s credit card inside the mall. She is now facing charges related to the incident.

Cases involving negligent or reckless behavior can enable victims of these crimes to file for damages under appropriate circumstances. It’s important to note that motorists who are involved in these unfortunate situations can talk to legal experts who can help them find closure after these traumatic events.

Plainville – Highway Crash

A highway incident was reported to authorities in Plainville late yesterday evening.

At approximately 11:13 p.m., emergency crews were dispatched to the westbound side of Route 72 crossing Plainville, about a quarter of a mile before Exit 2, to help those involved in a vehicle accident. Officials have yet to specify the number of vehicles involved in the crash, but injuries have been reported. Road crews were able to clear the accident site promptly, but the incident is still under investigation. Authorities will release more information as they become available.

Evening driving inherently poses more risks to motorists in any type of vehicle. Identifying what causes these nighttime accidents, particularly on highways, should help state and local officials make all roads safer for everyone. That said, if investigators find negligence, DUI or reckless driving in any of these cases, aggrieved parties not responsible for these crashes may have the option of filing for damages as determined by their legal counsel.
